Washington, Sep.3 (ANI): Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's presidential hopes have received a further hit with her daughter's ex-boyfriend Levi Johnston claiming she can't even shoot a gun.
Johnston, the teenager who Mrs Palin embraced as part of her family last year when it emerged during the presidential campaign that he had impregnated her 17-year-old daughter, turned against the family in an interview with Vanity Fair, painting the former governor as a selfish woman who took little interest in her children.
He claimed that Palin was incapable of handling a gun kept in the family home in Wasilla.
"She says she goes hunting and lives off animal meat - I've never seen it. I've never seen her touch a fishing pole. She had a gun in her bedroom and one day she asked me to show her how to shoot it.
I asked her what kind of gun it was, and she said she didn't know, because it was in a box under her bed," The Telegraph quoted Johnston, as saying.
Johnston also claimed that Palin was an absentee mother.
"The Palins didn't have dinner together and they didn't talk much as a family," he told Vanity Fair, adding that the mother of five never came home later than five and would often disappear for an hour-long bath.
"She always wanted things and she wanted other people to get them for her. If she wanted a movie, Bristol and I would go to the video store. If she wanted food, we'd get her something to eat, like a Crunchwrap Supreme from Taco Bell."
Palin rarely attended her son Track's hockey games, claimed Johnston.
Johnston fell out with the family after the birth of his child with Bristol, the eldest daughter.
He even claimed that Sarah Palin often spoke of adopting the baby and passing it off as her own.
Palin, however, has opted not to react and kept her counsel. (ANI)
